9:01 pm
leaders will overshadow the song we'll take you live to london also coming up tonight activist grows it sells across the atlantic again with the climate morning she says drastic measures are needed to cut c o 2 emissions as she prepares to deliver her message to the un wind climate summit and an exemption from u.s. sanctions for visits wayland baseball there is word tonight that the white house will well major league baseball players to once again head sell off season. i'm bring it off to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world well we begin tonight with nato at 70 leaders of nato members are meeting in london seeking to paper over the cracks amid
9:02 pm
obvious divisions in the military ally that's right now those leaders are at buckingham palace for a reception. hosted by the queen to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of nato it follows a very public spat between french president and u.s. president donald trump when those 2 leaders sat down together earlier today it was hard to predict how the meeting would go take a look. would you like some nice isis fighters ok give them even you could take everyone you want. not quite cordial combative tone pervaded the news conference with u.s. president donald trump and his french counterpart of mine will mark hong at the nato meeting in london on tuesday trump sharply rebuked mccraw for saying in an interview with the magazine the economist last month that quote what we are currently experiencing is the brain death of nato. it's
9:03 pm
a very tough statement to make when you have such difficulty in the british you look at what's happened with the yellow vests you look at what's going on during certain parts of this season of the year and you just can't go around making statements like that it's very disrespectful. micron however did not back down that uses my statement we. take the lead to be a lot of people and. leaders seem to have differing visions of the role of nato but each date i want to write and frankly one of the benefits really believed is the united states would benefit the elite helping europe. what needs to be. another of the alliances big players german chancellor
9:04 pm
angela merkel remains upbeat about nato with all of the differences here but of course we'll have to discuss them we have to talk about the future of nato and the strategic partnership i'm fairly optimistic about this meeting mr. optimism alone however it will not be enough to bridge the divide within the alliance of. our let's go now to our correspondent max often he joins us from london good evening to you max so what are we looking at here presidents had they been able to iron out their differences. there would have been a lot of reasons to be mad at each other and have that differences and one of them for example european spending for defense donald trump is always criticized that the europeans aren't doing enough or of course you mentioned it in that report alleged brain death of nato as you might have been called the french president
9:05 pm
called it but. we didn't talk so much about that it seemed more like a conciliatory meeting and the reason for that is that this is the celebration of the 75th anniversary of nato so it seems like most of the leaders here in spite of all the problems that nato has at the moment are saying ok let's not talk about this at least not now for this anniversary and you know max the u.s. president donald trump he has criticized nato a lot now he is claiming credit for what he says are reforms at nato is he justified in claiming credit. he's especially taking credit for the increased spending by most of the allies in nato since he took office and the numbers are undeniable spending has gone up significantly and you know the official goal of nato is to have its members spend 2 percent of the g.d.p. on defense and in the beginning when donald trump took office there were only 3
9:06 pm
countries that met that goal including the united states of america and now we're at 9 countries so that is undeniable even though many alliance members have consistently criticized the way donald trump has done this the tone the black mainly as some call this off the record the numbers are there are stand by we're going to come back to you in just a moment we want to take a look now at another point of contention and this nato summit that is turkey's military intervention in northern syria back in october turkish troops launched an offensive to clear kurdish fighters from the border area inside syria now that drew international condemnation we're now turkey wants to move refugees of syria's civil war into that reach. a turkish patrol unit in the northern syrian city of herat on the border with turkey this is where wants to resettle syrian refugees from
9:07 pm
turkey in a so-called safe zone as quickly as possible. the safe zone would stretch about 100 kilometers westward from ross sinai to. but the area lacks housing hospitals and schools so all is seeking money from the european union to fund construction work something the representative of president karen wants a.k.p. party in the turkish border town of jaylen p.r. is keen to emphasise. they should support turkey so that all the refugees can return to their homeland and live good. piece but there have been repeated explosions within the plant safe zone several people have been killed blames the kurdish y.p. jean militia others say the so-called islamic state is responsible. kurds in the region are deeply skeptical about whether that zone should be regarded as safe. relationship with the current situation the united nations should really intervene
9:08 pm
. many kurds make it clear that turkish troops are not welcome here greeting their tanks with a barrage of stones. or let's go back to our correspondent max often in london. turkey looks a lot like the black sheep in we know that it's president to one met this evening with the leaders of britain germany and france in downing street for some of the belt turkey's military intervention in northern syria has there been any result from that. turkey at least as a very different approach to doing things and that by the way is one of the reasons why a man or what i might call says that they may not necessarily have the same foundations anymore if they can't even agree on what is a terrorist and was not a terrorist so your definition of a black sheep would probably be shared by some of those and they don't member states and that's why a lot of people were anticipating this meeting that took place in london today between a mentor and i called the french president boris johnson the u.k.
9:09 pm
prime minister the german chancellor i'm going to macklin also president ever one of turkey but when i'm going to mecca came out after that meeting she was very pragmatic very i'm going to macro saying that this was a good start it was a good meeting they talked about fighting the so-called islamic state which was still in the sense that he also this is the working together with the united nations to take care of refugees in the area and that further steps would follow so not really much of criticism here towards president and one which is typical of him going to america because and that is the thinking behind it she knows that as soon as you criticize everyone heavily he just shuts down what he wants is to is to communicate she wants to find a solution somehow to convince him to stop what he's doing. you know makes if we put a sign for sake of the problems we have to also remember that the events there in london are meant to commemorate 70 years of nato is there real
9:10 pm
reason just celebrate this anniversary. it really depends who who you ask around i mean the alliance is still here after 70 years and that is a success in itself it makes it a successful alliance of course it has its ups and downs and it's never been as challenged as now at least in recent years during the cold war of course the pressure there was pressure from the outside the common enemy of the soviet union and put everybody on the same page but it's become more difficult. the world itself has become more difficult but still many would argue it is a successful alliance they have reformed themselves s.s. will be in the last 5 years with their readiness plans for example on the eastern border of of the nato of the nato member states but of course undeniably with there are so many problems from the south in syria from the east russia in cyber the cyber space from from china that it's become more difficult to have this united
9:11 pm
front it's more difficult to work together because the problems are multilayered and the allies aren't necessarily in agreement on all those issues a correspondent max hoffman live in london tonight's max thank you. well here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world the evidence for impeaching u.s. president donald trump for misconduct in office is quote over whelming that's the verdict of the final report on the house investigation into the u.s. president the report's findings support formal charges against the white house dismissed the report saying it failed to produce any evidence of wrongdoing germany's defense minister has made an unannounced visit to afghanistan on a great car about what he's also known as a k k says that natives mission to support afghan peace and stability should be extended beyond march of next year when it is scheduled to end. typhoon camorra has

9:13 pm
a point. i'm not traveling like this because i want everyone to do so i'm doing this to sort of send the message that it is. if. it is impossible to live sustainable today and that means saying these become much easier to undo it arrives in europe as the un's cup 25 climate summit is in full swing representatives in delegates from some 200 countries have got that a majority spain to try and find a way to reduce the world's emissions of greenhouse gases their arrival also coincided with the release of a bleak report from the world meteorological organization predicting that the past decade will most likely be the hottest in recorded history. many don't realize the power of the popular movement this may be unleashed. i think people
9:14 pm
on just making a fuss of angry kids. should be meeting with activists in lisbon before making her way to the climate summit on friday. and to discuss that report from the world media wrong school organization i'm joined here at the big table by professor. he is director at the institute of meteorology at the free university here in berlin professor it's good to see you this report that came out today what in your opinion is the most troubling about it. should we be a lot more well the report also says apart from what we observe that there is mechanisms that could enhance that development that your county facing and there is not only the atmospheric temperature all people talk about but
9:15 pm
there is also for example the acidity of the oceans which may affect the marines' life if you kill lots of species it could yes because if they are not adapted to that they cannot adapt like that quickly to that situation you are a meteorologist you deal with the weather do you think that science is as well as journalists are we doing a good job at educating the public about how whether climate and climate change or connected. well i'm not quite sure that it is really optimal how how we are communicating things because there is the issue of likelihood that is greatly underestimated so in my opinion it is a very good development that we are now pushing politics to do something of the background of it is may be a chance that we had really extremely hot weather. in germany
9:16 pm
while the general global average temperature is on the rise and so the part where there was part says it's not unexpected you know i mean it still is basically the world is getting hotter and the weather is getting more extreme and you know everyone likes to talk of and complain about the weather but they usually say you can't do anything about it is that is it true that when you're i mean have we reached a point where we have to do something to impact the weather in the climb well. weather is what we have in the moment and the climate is the aggregation of all weather and the climate is changing so the likelihood of certain extreme weather which is most relevant of course to us is that is changing and so we are facing more extremes in certain aspects but of cause and others not code spells fate
9:17 pm
sample become less i'm likely. when weather gets warmer but with her going to present they can't. if you have. a different reference it changes of course i think most people will perceive the weather has become more extreme how confident are you that what's happening in madrid the paris climate agreement that those agreements are going to be successful at slowing down climate change is going to work well i think that the 1st steps now but there is the need of moss that's to come and the what is most important is that politics and able to people to follow climate neutral pathway and this is count lead not sufficiently down i think people want to do something about it but often then they do not feel there is ethic quit possibility to do that yeah i know i hear
9:18 pm
a lot of people saying they feel helpless maybe that they don't know what they could do. for the for university here in berlin professor we appreciate your time and insights tonight thank you thank you. and here are other stories now that are making news around the world in the sudanese capital khartoum an explosion inside a tile factory has killed at least $23.00 people police say more than $130.00 were being treated for injuries officials say the blaze a ruptured when a gas tanker exploded while unloading cargo at the factories sudan has suffered a number of industrial accidents in recent months finland's prime minister has resigned over his government's handling of a 2 week postal strike the social democrat quit after one of his coalition partners said that it had lost confidence in him the current administration will stay on until a new one is former north korean leader kim jong un has opened

a flagship construction project near the mountain where his family claims its roots state media held the revamped city submachine gun city as the epitome of modern civilization the so-called socialist utopia includes housing commercial facilities and over again at a ski resort. on today is the united nations international day of persons with disabilities there are 1000000000 people living with disabilities worldwide that's 15 percent of the global population according to the world health organization 80 percent of disabled people live in what is known as the global south which means they often have poor medical social conditions to deal with in some countries up to a quarter of disability result not from birth but from injuries and violence here in germany many see inclusion as the main challenge the goal is for people with
9:20 pm
disabilities to be completely integrated into society. every day. and his colleagues clean the area outside a daycare center in berlin and. announces contributing to society despite his condition. he has down syndrome and. together with other severely disabled people he is part of a special program for those who need constant assistance for example with talking. what are you doing here you. know what are we doing here. we're making sure the neighborhood stays clean we walk around the buildings in the morning pick up waste paper and clean up the place. picking up garbage may not seem like the most glamorous job in the world but i mustn't joys it especially when local
9:21 pm
residents take notice of his work. i know that it is important for our workers because they like being outside and it's important to them to be outside in order to be a bit more present in society. there are almost 8000000 severely disabled people in germany nearly half of them are of working age in the last 10 years the number of disabled employees in germany has risen by one 3rd but most of these people are still separated from society and clued in will only be possible when government and industry start taking these people seriously. i think you have to start by taking disabled people a little more seriously. let's take a concrete example life why does the company have to drive the orders to us in the workshop then we work on those orders and then they send a truck to pick them up and drive them back to the company why can't i as a group leader go directly to the company with my group and work directly from
9:22 pm
there from my point of view that would be the best way. to my thumb about. whether cleaning streets are making souvenirs from wood the ultimate goal of this program is to get disabled people a proper paint job the chances are not high though only one or 2 per year make the leap to an actual company. and for more i'm joined by constantine graw she is a local politician and an activist for more inclusion here in germany it's good to have you on the show i want to ask you are people with disabilities are they seen primarily as exactly that people with disabilities and not as citizens students art is carpenter. i guess so yes particularly in the media we only show disabled people in populate when it's about this able
9:23 pm
policies about disability we don't show them in other contexts like and attainment or sports so i think we have a difficulty in germany and overall in the world to show and disobeys disabled people and all of people who have a knowledge job. and what about the way we describe people with disabilities you know we say for example we don't say that someone is blind we say that maybe they have vision disability is how important is the language for improving inclusion or does it actually work to hinder more inclusion. no i think ill words to describe our realities so it's very important to use the words correctly and if i look in look in the. situation in john when we have a big problem that we miss. people really needs because we describe them wrong
9:24 pm
we describe that the problem is the body of that is a bit we have quite the perspective that's really medicine type or really into the biology situation of a body but we have to see that these people get these able by society and so on the question is who is responsible for the problems that he is able people to be in society used to grow in a recent interview used you said there are no television news anchor with visible in the care. why do you think that's the case. i think we have a structural problem on the one side we have big problems in the education area that disabled people can qualify themselves for these type of jobs on the other
9:25 pm
side i think we have problems with the perspective off disabled people we don't think that they have the skids they don't. maybe than the normal society don't want to see them want television and i think that's wrong we have to show them a picture of these people. that it's norm of that you have a disability is your stream and that we can see that everywhere because it's a gross we appreciate your time and your insights tonight thank you thank you. baseball is america's game but it is also loved in other countries such as venezuela but u.s. sanctions against it and it's where the government well they have struck out for the sport there tonight warriors is reporting that the u.s. has created a sanctions exemption for events where this baseball league the reprieve couldn't come at a better time because venezuela usually sees an influx of major league baseball
